Litigation doesn't always end when the jury comes back. Regardless of the outcome at trial, for many cases, the next step is the federal or state appellate court.
Appellate law is a unique practice that requires attorneys with the know-how to navigate the procedural hurdles involved in perfecting and pursuing an appeal. Barrett McNagny LLP brings a wealth of experience to all levels of appellate practice, both state and federal, and handles appeals that originate both in-house, as well those that originate from other attorneys and law firms.
With all appeals, time is of the essence. Most avenues for civil appeal close after thirty days, and for some appeals, the time to act can be even shorter. We understand this significant constraint and will work directly with the client and with trial counsel to discuss all appellate options, including filing necessary post-trial motions.
The Appellate Practice Group consists of Cathleen M. Shrader (chair), Michael H. Michmerhuizen, Jeremy N. Gayed and William A. Ramsey. Ms. Shrader is a past Chair of the Appellate Section of the Indiana State Bar Association, as well as a frequent speaker on appellate matters. All members of the appellate section are experienced in appellate oral argument before federal and state appellate courts, including the Indiana Supreme Court.
